AZ vs Ajax Betting Tips

An entertaining and high-scoring encounter looks likely on Wednesday as a confident AZ entertains Ajax in the last 16 of the KNVB Beker.

The hosts enter his fixture in great form, unbeaten in their last 7 league outings with 5 wins and 2 draws. A little further reveals excellent consistency for AZ who have lost just 1 of 17 league matches this season while they have now won 9 of their last 12.

However, while they continue to impress domestically, including a fine 3:1 win at PSV last week, AZ is guilty of conceding too many goals with each of their last 9 league matches seeing BTTS. 8 of those 9 also saw over 2.5 goals scored.

AZ also boast a strong record at the AFAS Stadion, losing just 1 of their last 11 while goals remain a consistent occurrence, with 6 of their last 8 including each of their last 4 seeing BTTS. AZ has also managed to score at least 1 goal in 30 of their last 31 home league matches over the last 2 years.

With Ajax seeing BTTS in each of their last 5 matches, 4 of which went over 2.5 goals (25 goals were scored in those 5 matches) you would expect this contest to produce plenty of goal-mouth action as well although the past h2h record is somewhat offputting.

Remarkably, despite both sides being consistently heavy scorers, none of the last 5 meetings between these two sides saw BTTS, while AZ has won each of the last 3 with clean sheets in all 3 wins.

Still, Ajax is unlikely to shoot another blank here and given AZ´s home form, and goals have to be expected with BTTS and over 2.5 goals looking to be likely outcomes here.

AZ vs Ajax Correct Score Prediction

An exciting tie should be on the cards, and this one could go the distance following an entertaining 2:2 draw at the AFAS Stadion.
